Spare Harvest exists so local communities can connect and share, swap or sell what they have spare in their gardens and farms. We all know the horrifying statistics around food waste, what they don’t take into account is the amount of garden and farm waste. Not only is food wasted in gardens and farms due to seasonal gluts and produce not meeting cosmetic standards, there are numerous other resources wasted. Tools that don’t get used all the time, plants, cuttings, pots, left over landscaping materials and organic matter. One person’s trash is another person’s treasure and it does not make sense to waste these resources when there could be someone in your community who will use them.
It’s time we tried to keep our local resources circulating in our community for as long as possible. Let’s throw away less and share more. Share food, share resources, share time, share land and share knowledge.
Spare Harvest creates local food and garden connections. It’s time we reconnected with our food and our community.
